Jennifer volunteers as a Program Information Center (PIC) volunteer and we are so thankful! So, what do these volunteers do?

Program Information Center volunteers support staff in providing accurate and timely information about our programs and services by answering questions and directing phone calls. We need volunteers who are outgoing, customer-service focused, and willing to make a long-term commitment to this position.

Almost everyone has heard of Habitat for Humanity. And that’s awesome! But sometimes we discover misconceptions about what we do, how we work, and who buys homes with Habitat. So, we’ve put together this list to help set the facts straight.

Of course, if you have any questions, we’d love to talk with you. Just give us a call.

We are excited to announce a Twin Cities Habitat Global Village trip to Ethiopia! Habitat Ethiopia is one of Twin Cities Habitat's partner affiliates and we are looking forward to returning there November 1-10, 2019. We will be building homes and/or working on WASH (Water and Sanitation Health) projects to support partner families in Addis Ababa. These projects will be fueled by teamwork, and hard working volunteers like you. No previous construction experience is necessary. All tools, site supervision, and in-country logistics support will be provided by Habitat Ethiopia staff.

Here at Twin Cities Habitat, we feel lucky to work with such knowledgeable and dedicated staff. We knew that was exactly what we’d be getting when Joe Khawaja joined the team as Chief Financial Officer, and we are oh so grateful!

Have you heard? Jordan Week of Kindness (JWOK) is just around the corner, coming up on Saturday, June 1, 2019 on 27th and Russell Ave. North in Minneapolis. This is our fourth year collaborating on a block beautification event with the Jordan Area Community Council (JACC) in the Jordan neighborhood of Minneapolis. JWOK is much more than just a block party. It’s a week-long, collaborative partnership with the Jordan neighborhood association to bring community members and residents together in beautifying the Jordan neighborhood, one block at a time.

Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity recently kicked off construction at our new development in St. Paul's North End neighborhood. Over the next two years, literally thousands of community members from corporate, faith, and Women Build groups will volunteer on the construction of these 11 homes. There were many partners involved in making this project possible, so it's exciting to see it come to fruition.

Our five-year, $55 million fundraising campaign to double Habitat homeownership opportunities for local families, Multiplying the Impact, is right on track. If you’ve donated or volunteered, you’re part of this campaign. Thank you.

It’s going to take all of us digging deeper to reach our goals. A great way to do that is to lead your very own Habitat build day.

Sound scary? It’s not! Just ask Catina Koenig. Inspired by the campaign, she decided to lead her own build day—even though she had only volunteered with Habitat just once before.

It’s been five years since Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity built our flagship headquarters on University Avenue in St. Paul. We are celebrating because in that time, we have had the space to grow and change to better serve local families and to support our mission of eliminating poverty housing in the Twin Cities.
